Rustoleum ultimate.... and then I top coated it with krylon matte finish clearcoat.
It has created a great finish.

Then again its all about prep

But it seems to take armor all well without any adverse effects

OMG OMG you ruined your car you idiot!! haha now that is out the way. Every DIY guy has to start somewhere, and if you're not breaking stuff or messing stuff up, you're not learning.

Okay, so here is something you need to do. you have to strip off all of your old paint before starting. When painting plastic panels, you have to buy plastic adhesion promoter or at least that new krylon chemically bonding stuff. You have to sand it down probably starting with 80 grit and working your way all the way up to 600. rattle can doesn't cover up scratches from 220, 320, or even 400grit. after sanding the hell out your panels (yes it will be a PITA and take forver), then start by cleaning with prep-all. Next, apply the plastic adhesion promotor. (read the can for instructions) Finally you can paint in very very light layers. As for vinyl, you have to buy special vinyl dye, you can't just use regular old rattle can. Read up on forums, and do your research before trying again. I'm sure it will come out great, you just have to do a ton of reading and make sure to get the correct products for you application.

When i first saw this thread i thought the same think, what a dumb ass, but now im starting to feel bad. Dont take it personal dude, but plan out what your going to do next time.

1st thing to think of about what your painting. Paint is going to cure and be somewhat hard. When you put this on top of a flexable serface, like vinly of fabric, then it will crack over time due to the flexing.

2nd, read the back of the paint cans. Primer is more important than top coat. Good thinking is crap in crap out. If you start with a bad surface then what can you expect. After prime sand down and then clean. Then apply multiple thin even coats. Yes it is that easy.

-General rule of paint- 1)paint will stick to what ever its applied to, if dirt, oil, or dust in on top of the surface your going to paint then guess what the paint is going to stick too. 2) paint needs some texture to stick, this is why sanding is important.

And dont feel bad everyone learn from mistakes, but try to learn on something you can fix. Painting your seats in not fixable so it is a bad item to learn on.

I am pretty sure i can use this thing as practice. the Haters will al lbe quite pleased to know that a nice truck thought it would be an interesting endeavor to remove the rear of my car and screw up my rear axle quite a bit as well. car's done, i have it posted up in seller's as a part out, but until such a time since it is garbage now i believe practice on the parts that won't be taken, as far as paint, are more than justified. I do hope that the hater's of the world get to feel the wonderful sting of having an incompetant beaner remove their subie from their lifestyle.

A. what kind of paint should i be using for which parts and
B. how can i take out the entire dash so as to have better access to it for the job

here are some pics of the job so far, still incomplete

Hey Sixthgearjunkie,

If you are going to paint plastic, there was this plastic primer I found. I can't remember the name or the brand. No need to heat the plastic up or sanding to apply. Just clean the surface and spray the primer, it comes out white. That then allows you to spray paint your choice of color and gives it something to adhere too. Just check around Autozone but I think I got it at Home Depot. It was primer for plastic patio furniture, but it works amazing. We used it on my friendís beater of a CRX.

Guys, mocking his paint job isnít going to solve his problem.

Key way to avoid running is quick little bursts, don't have to cover everything in one coat. Also don't put the nozzle up close for a heavy coat. Just short quick bursts in a 50/50 coverage pattern. Think of it like a printer, line by line. Then 50/50 coverage is the next line is about 50% onto the line above it.

I'm not a "beaner" as I'm Caucasian, but my wife is Mexican and i think a lot of other people here are too. I don't go around calling you a slang for black do I? So show some respect you retard.

Also don't call that POS a Subie, just because you bought some junker and put a CAI on it. That guy in the truck did this whole forum a favor by putting that car out of its misery.

Word of advice: don't post pics of your ****ty car especially when they link to other pictures of your dumb ass in the drivers seat. get some ****ing braces you inbred bitch.

I started to feel bad for the OP, but now he's throwing racial slurs and the next he has it will be even worse.

Next time on Rice Wars!: Southern man paints his STi alcantara lime gren!
